On Sundays, I look forward to the slower and more relaxing pace of the day as the family is all gathered together under one roof. Cooking this Roasted Rosemary Garlic Chicken is perfect for a lazy Sunday. On Sundays there is always more time to cook a nice dinner with all the trimmings – maybe even a dessert for after the meal.
For this roasted chicken recipe, I decided to make a rosemary garlic chicken. This roasted rosemary garlic chicken fits perfect into Sunday dinner at home. Rosemary and chicken are just meant to be best friends with each other and I just have to have garlic in the mix too! I also added vegetables in the pan while the chicken was roasting. I always like to have potatoes and carrots.
It usually takes a couple hours to roast the chicken in the oven and you need to be nearby to lovingly spoon the juices over the chicken as it is cooking to ensure the meat is succulent and juicy. It is always worth the labor of love! I also enjoy having the chicken skin crisp up to golden brown while it is roasting. The whole house gets enveloped in the wonderful aroma of the chicken and herbs and the whole family will have content bellies!
Since it is also fall and squash is in season, I included acorn squash and Brussels sprouts. The vegetables roasted up nicely in the juices of butter, rosemary and garlic. They were very happy vegetables! Depending on the time of year, add your favorite root vegetables to the roasting pan with the chicken. My son-in-law who is not a big fan of Brussels sprouts or squash, really enjoyed them roasted in all the good juices and seasonings.
